North Portland Yoga

Feet in socks, feet on the floor, feet carrying your body, toes in the sand. Hands playing instruments, hands cooking food, hands lifting objects, fingers combing hair. These divine darlings of our body are our support system and our greatest tools. We will spend two hours honoring these often-neglected parts of ourselves with a sense of exploration and reverence. We will nurture our hands and feet through intuitive myofascial release and self-massage, and explore their significance in asana. Using the breath as our guide and our own presence as Healer, our hands and feet will receive loving energy and physical relief + nourishment. This workshop will offer a spacious container in which we may deepen our relationships to these sacred parts of the human body vessel. Cost is $30 in advance or $35 at the desk. Register here.

Nourish Northwest

Where do our rituals of yoga and eating intersect? How do we embrace the same awareness we invoke on our yoga mats while we consume our food? How might the manner in which we eat affect our journeys of inner healing? Please join us for an energizing morning yoga practice followed by a nourishing meal shared in community. We will awaken and explore our bodies in asana for the first half of class. After connecting with breath + movement we will gather to enjoy a delicious, savory breakfast. We will have the sweet opportunity to extend and integrate our practice of yoga into the yoga of eating our breakfast together with mindfulness and reverence. This lovingly prepared breakfast will be vegetarian and gluten-free, based around organic vegetables and whole grains. Allison cooks intuitively, allowing the process of cooking to unfold as a creative language. She selects ingredients with energetic vibrance and infuses her meals with love and intention. Cost is $40, or $35 if you register before April 20. Due to the nature of food preparation, we request pre-registration for this event in order to attend. Register here.

North Portland Yoga

How does our relationship to our feet affect the entirety of our bodies? And how do the soles of our feet relate to the earth beneath us? How are our hands mystical microcosms? What exists within a simple hand gesture? In what ways do we employ our hands throughout our days? We will spend two hours honoring these often-overlooked parts of our bodies with a sense of exploration and reverence. Paying close attention to the language of our hands and feet, we will nurture them through myofascial release and self-massage, learn of their symbolic and functional roles, and explore how we engage with our hands and feet during asana. This workshop will offer a spacious container in which we may deepen our relationships to these sacred parts of the human body vessel. Cost is $30 in advance or $35 at the desk.
